Podcast: What is the Value of an EMR in a Rural or Remote Community?
Posted Jan 22 2009 4:43pm
Dr. Ewan Affleck is a friend and colleague who practices in Yellowknife in the Northwest Territories and has done so for more than 15 years. I had an opportunity to speak with Ewan about his experiences regarding an EMR system that has been implemented in Yellowknife and we discussed some of the benefits and challenges of rural and remote medicine.
He has some very interesting insights into the value of Information Technology to remote communities, challenges of recruiting and retaining staff in smaller remote clinics and his experiences using EMRs.
